    We should take a running count of genres Walter finds discrediting:

    Pixar Films;
    Superhero Films;
    Cartoon films;
    Spy thrillers:
    Films about dogs.

    any others?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and add science fiction and fantasy to that mix.

    Let's not forget that Walter's prior username was Space Ghost.

    Not sure what your point is here. Space Ghost transitioned to be the host of a daily talk show on Comedy Central, paving the way for Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah, et al. Both Stewart and Colbert have personally cited Space Ghost as a profound influence on their work lampooning the political establishment. Without Space Ghost, dipshits like the current POTUS would have far easier work messing up our country.

    Thank you Space Ghost. We salute you.

    I imagine no occult, or probably no fiction whatsoever. It's C-Spann or nothing for him.

    We always seem to be a few months behind on things, but we finally watched The Greatest Showman last night. Fantastic! We loved it.

Steve Buscemi's Khrushchev and Jeffrey Tambor's Malenkov are excellent; actually, pretty much everyone is great.

    Finally saw A Quiet Place.

    Loved it. Intense moments, for sure.

    I figured that the act of my daughter illegally streaming 'Coco' and me distracted by work would help negate any good juju, and stem an emotional response from me.

    Nope. Hopefully my daughter didn't notice.

    What a great movie. Again.

    It was a marvelous experience mixing the pathos of the historical incidents with a dark humor that only that cast could have pulled off.

    I watched on the plane from New York to Vegas, and had to lean my seat back, in order to conceal the emotional response. Not having lived any time other than a brief vacation in Latin America, I never developed an appreciation for El Dia de Los Muertos. What an astounding manner in showing a profound appreciation for the cultural celebration.

    Disney is going to have to rethink its Star Wars strategy. Supposedly this Solo movie, which I refuse to watch, is going to underperform another movie I refused to watch, Justice League.

    Justice League's performance was the culmination of Zach Snyder misfires that happened to make money -- the Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. Justice League in it's own right was supposedly terrible and the brand couldn't save it.

    Solo is supposed to also be terrible, and because of the horrible Last Jedi, the brand isn't saving it.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Solo was great fun. I enjoyed it a lot. I don't care at all about the whole Star Wars canon business. I don't know any Star Wars trivia. It was a fun movie and I don't need to over analyze it.

    Everyone should know that going in after seeing the first movie. It exceeded my expectations greatly.

    I am watching Solo on Monday morning. I will return and report on how wrong CMBF is. From everyone I have talked with, the movie is great. Less TLJ and more Rogue One.

    Agree with this. Solo was a lot of fun if you don't overthink it. I got invited to a prerelease screening full of nerds. The applause shook the room.

    Deadpool was awesome.

    Solo was badass-quite far from 'terrible.' Ron Howard doesn't just take cinematic dumps- lol @ wishful thinking dorks that thought that's what was going to happen b/c they are mad that Luke died in TLJ.

    The story was pretty straight-forward as sort of an origin/background story that also serves to expand the universe with more characters and entities, with a solid turn from Alden E. as Young Han and great presence from Woody Harrelson, Khaleesi, and obviously Childish Gambino. Pretty reminiscent of Rogue One with its exploration of the SW universe that doesn't mention or know about lightsabers.

    Aside from the main storyline, lots of deep dives into canon with easter eggs and teases- including one gigantic one at the end- indicating that the movies are going to delve into Dave Filoni (the genius behind the Clone Wars/Rebels series) territory.

    Was struck by how close Childish Gambino's speech and mannerisms and look echoed Billy Dee Williams.
